Basic Information On Affordable Pet Insurance

By Jay Beckner

Affordable pet insurance is of interest to people who own animals. This type of insurance is used to cover the veterinary costs that one may have following the illness or injury to a pet. There are even some policies that will cover costs if an animal is stolen, lost or passes away.

The goal of these policies is to lessen the expense risk for treatment of animals. Overall, veterinary bills are known for being expensive. This is because the field has begun to employ more techniques and drugs. Animal owners also have higher expectations for health care and standard living for their pets.

Claes Virgin is credited with writing the first pet policy in the late 1800s. Virgin was also a founder of an alliance focused on horses and livestock. The first coverage for pets was sold in Britain during the 1940s.

Most animal owners assume this type of coverage is just a different form of human health care policies. This is not true. In fact, it is more similar to property coverage because the owners are reimbursed by the provider following the care. Owners will put forth a claim to their provider company. Guidelines and policies will differ depending on the region.

Historically, coverage plans did not account for preventative care or elective procedures, such as vaccinations and neutering. In recent years, some companies located in the United States, Canada and United Kingdom have made changes to offer routine-care protection, also known as comprehensive coverage. Some providers also cover physiotherapy, prescription drugs, alternative treatments, acupuncture and dental care.

People who own animals may believe that it is important for them to find affordable pet insurance. Owners should research the different coverage plans that are available to them and see what best fits with their personal needs. Many options can be chosen from and most of them differ by the provider and region.
